Coil over and bypass pressure Questions

Recommended Posts

Ok stupid question 

I have Fox by passers and coil overs

I put a new wheel bearing in and I am getting ready to charge the shocks with nitrogen  

do I charge them both at 150 psi or just the bypass?

I have had  internal by pass before so I never had to think about it

It should be 200 psi in both.

I would think it depends on if  there coil carriers or shocks  might need more information

I thought King recommends 150 PSI and Fox is 200 PSI 
 

if possible charge them at full droop

You're right, I just assumed he was correct when he posted 150.

You can put 200 in Kings as well without issue.

Depends on your setup...I run all of my foxes at 250psi.  I know some guys who run them up over 300.

So what does upping the pressure help with? Bottoming? Chop? something else? Thanks

As you increase the pressure in the shock, it pushes against the shaft intruding into the body of the shock. It doesn't affect valving, but it does add a kind of a spring effect pushing the shaft to full extension faster.

I usually run  Higher pressures in the dunes for the sharp transitions and G outs. It ramps up pressure when you get closer to bump and lessens the hard bottom out hits. I run lower pressure when I run hard pack because there are less G outs and jumps but more whoops, rocks and hard edges. It takes some of the harshness out of the suspension.
